Are you finding that your home is simply too big for you? You may find that being empty-nesters makes your home feel lonely. It may also be that you are retiring and that you don't want the upkeep of a large home. For whatever the reason, if downsizing is in your near future, but you still want to maintain a luxurious home, here are some ideas for you to consider.
Retirement Home Living - You may not be ready for an assisted-living home, but you may welcome the opportunity to live in a luxury retirement home. The beauty of living in a retirement home is that gourmet-style meals are often offered in a luxurious dining room setting. Maid service is often part of the monthly fee, or you can request it for additional payment each month. In addition to elegant living spaces, you'll usually have transportation to places like shopping areas, museums, the theater and other points of interest. Many luxury retirement home apartments offer individual patios. You can make sure that your apartment will have things like fine crown molding and granite or marble countertops that will add elegance. Your kitchen may not be huge, but it will have state-of-the-art appliances in it.
Luxury Apartments - Another thought is to forego your elegant large house for a luxurious apartment that offers great perks. Take advantage of the valet service, maid service and gardening service the apartments offer. In addition, select an apartment that has an indoor heated swimming pool and a full spa and gym. Many luxury apartments also provide limousine transportation for an added price. Look for details like crystal chandeliers and state-of-the-art equipment in the kitchen. Luxury apartments often include entertainment rooms and small patios with outdoor kitchens. Expect gorgeous cabinetry and countertops in the bathrooms and kitchens. Besides large walk-in closets, each bedroom will often have its own elegant bathroom, complete with the latest in bathtubs and separate showers.
As you begin your search for the perfect downsized home, consider what you want for your surroundings. Do you prefer the quieter life of the suburbs where you can still see old friends and get to places like movie theaters and shopping centers? On the other hand, city life might be in your future. If you want the excitement of being close to places like theaters and museums, you might find the exact right luxury apartment right in the downtown areaShare
